    Engine overheated, radiator cap blew off & water spewed over front engine compartment, then engine began to missfirer and sputter. My mechanic said head gasket was damaged. Losing water out tailpipe. Put stop leak in radiator twice & it would last about 60 miles & water level would drop approximately 1/2 to 1 gal. Added 50/50 antifreeze mix 3 times over several days. Going to blow off with air around electrical connections ?
